This is sand saturated with water. Just a soupy mess I tell ya.lol. I usually trap this creek in a canoe and use weights as drowners. I walked close to a mile settin it today and never got over knee deep except when i marred up in mud.

I didnt get the boot stake though. Is the 4"x4" like a cap on the stake or welded to the side near the bottom like a fin (like the things on metal fence post)?
shane

welded on top so you can push it in with your boot.

That would make it easier to push in but it wouldnt hold any better.

20" lond 1/2" or 3/4" conduit. Mashed on one end, hole on the other for attaching the trap. They are light and hold better than rebar.

I have places like you describe around here. 48" rebar can be pulled out with one finger.
I've used those soft bottom birkshires on 36-42" of cable the last couple years with very good results. My water stake driver is 54" long just for that reason.
